Office Disaster

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

Broken pipe in the ceiling A broken pipe at a local school caused the office below to suffer heavy water damage.

What started out as a quiet, typical school day for one counselor at a local high school, soon became a little more exciting. A pipe above the woman's office burst, causing it to rain down in her office. Luckily they were able to turn off the water and get the situation under control before the damage continued to get worse. SERVPRO responded not too long after and they got right to work. SERVPRO began with extracting the water from the carpet in the room. This is an important step because by removing as much water as possible, this allows the carpet to dry much quicker. The next thing they needed to do was remove any damaged ceiling tiles, these are not salvageable due to the material they are made from so they were discarded. After removing all the water they could and performing the necessary demolition, it was time to place the drying equipment and get the office dried out in the quickest and most effective manner. After a few days of the equipment running, the room was completely dried out and the job had been a success. This job served as a good reminder that water can strike anywhere, but no matter what, SERVPRO will always be there to get the job done.
